The one he liked to shoot in the air on TV.
Seems a bit shady that the CIA gave it to a retiring agent and he is allowed to auction it off.
New Product Announcement:
(LAS VEGAS) –With a lot of patience, practice and fine-tuning, Arsenal, Inc. perfected and released what it believes to be best in its lineup to date. The SAM7SF rifle is the latest in a small group of firearms to join the SAM family and incorporates smarter, more comfortable features for the American enthusiast.
The 7.62×39 caliber SAM7SF rifle utilizes the Bulgarian right-folding tubular buttstock. This stock leaves enough clearance both for the charging handle and the trigger. Since the stock on this rifle folds to the right side, it allows the shooter to leave a scope mount attached while carrying the firearm in the folded position. Even more — the rubber butt plate provides a more comfortable alternative to its bare metal predecessors by sitting against the shooter’s shoulder more firmly and helps lessen recoil impact.
The new ergonomic pistol grip is designed and manufactured specifically to work with the ambidextrous safety lever even when the stock is folded, letting the shooter operate the safety without overstretching his hand or letting go of the grip.
Released only as an American manufactured limited edition nearly 8 years ago, both Arsenal, Inc. and Arsenal of Bulgaria spent the last couple of years refining this rifle to make it near perfect and extremely affordable. While some units from the limited edition have been retailing for over $3000 recently – the newer, more meticulously crafted SAM7SF comes with an introductory price tag of:
Retail Price: $1349.00 | First 500 Units
After the initial 500 units are sold, the price jumps slightly to $1599, which is still well under the MSRP of $1650. The SAM7SF is immediately available for sale beginning Wednesday, August 7th.
Additional specifications for this unique 7.62x39mm caliber rifle include: a forged & milled receiver proven to increase accuracy, a chrome-lined, hammer-forged barrel, muzzle brake, 24×1.5mm muzzle threads, bayonet and accessory lugs, a redesigned black polymer pistol grip, hand guards, stainless steel heat shield, the modern and convenient ambidextrous safety lever, sectional cleaning rod, shipped with one 10-round magazine, sling, oil bottle, and cleaning kit.

This Wednesday, July 18, the Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a special hearing on legislation to repeal Michigan’s “permit-to-purchase” and registration requirements for handguns. House Bill 5225, which seeks to replace the state handgun “permit-to-purchase” requirement with the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, has already passed in the state House of Representatives by an overwhelming 74 to 36 vote on June 13. Additionally, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear the two companion bills to HB 5225, House Bill 5498 and House Bill 5499, both of which also passed the state House and were sent to the Senate last month.
HB 5225, sponsored by state Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93), would repeal the outdated and ineffective “permit-to-purchase” requirement. Under the current state process, gun buyers must apply with their local law enforcement agency and pass a written test before being authorized to buy a handgun. This “permit” is valid for only one gun and it expires after ten days. This process became obsolete when the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) took effect in 1998. Since that time, federal law has required a national criminal records check for the purchase of any firearm, from any gun dealer, in every state. The NRA has been working diligently to repeal the antiquated, costly and unnecessary “permit-to-purchase” obstacle for gun owners, and has coordinated with several state Representatives to produce the new language for HB 5225.
HB 5225 as amended would, if enacted:
- Repeal the state requirement to seek police permission to purchase a firearm by traveling to a local police station and obtaining a permit to purchase.
- Repeal the requirement for a law-abiding citizen to register a legally purchased and owned firearm with the government through the police.
- Adopt the use of the federally-funded National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
- Cut Michigan’s costs by using the federally-administered national instant background check system and eliminate wasted man-hours of tracking lawful gun owners in Michigan.
- Default to the federal standard of prohibited persons and require a background check for each purchase.
Murdoc is optimistic that this is going to become law, but Michigan residents take a few minutes to contact your senators to make sure they know you care about this. Combined with the elimination of the “safety inspection” (registration) requirement after any pistol purchase, Michigan is finally on the right path for handgun ownership.
Building on the phenomenal success of its Rail Master™ laser, Crimson Trace announces the immediate release to sale of their new, 100 lumen rail-mounted Rail Master light (http://www.crimsontrace.com/products/type/rail-master/01-3260). Engineered to fit any firearm with a Picatinny rail, the Rail Master offers a 2 hour run time on one CR2 lithium battery and instant, ambidextrous activation in a compact, snag-free package. The Rail Master light will be available through the regular dealer network or direct from the Crimson Trace website at an MSRP of $139.
Each Rail Master light is equipped with 4 interchangeable inserts to allow the user to custom fit it to their gun. “The idea was to allow this multi-platform illumination tool to fit as many firearms as possible,” said Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. “The Rail Master’s inserts and Secure-Lock Technology™ allow it to fit both rifles and shotguns, while on handguns, the user can fine tune the position of the light on the gun to optimize activation with either hand. We believe it’s the most flexible and user friendly tactical light available.”
Due to its adaptability and rugged nature, the Rail Master light is expected to be the dominant weapon light at the Crimson Trace Midnight 3 Gun Match (http://www.crimsontrace.com/news/article/crimson-trace-to-host-the-worlds-only-nighttime-3-gun-match) in July – the World’s first and only night time 3 gun match. Some of the nation’s top 3 gunners will be equipping their pistols, rifles and shotguns with the Rail Master as they blast a wide array of targets in the pitch black high desert night. Expect to see extensive coverage of the match and the Rail Master product line and Midnight 3Gun Invitational on NBC Sports, Versus and the Outdoor Channel this Fall.
